Getting Ready

Prep was easy peasy!

I simply printed off a copy of all five sheets and grabbed some crayons.

(Don’t have crayons? Colored pencils or markers would work well too!)

Color by Sight Word

Since there were five different choices, I placed the papers on the table and let the kids choose which one they wanted to tackle first.

Each sheet has sight words from our combined sight word lists, so I knew they would all give students great reading practice.

Together we looked at the key at the top of the page.

We read each word and then they colored the box to match the key: “it” was pink, “of ” was yellow, etc.

Then it was time to color!

The students chose the section they wanted to color first.

They read the word, looked at the key to figure out what color the section should be, and then used their crayon to color it.

We continued reading the words and coloring each section until the picture was revealed!

    I absolutely love your free resources. They are very useful, especially during these times. My students love coloring so this is a great pack for them to learn sight words. I cannot wait to try the word families garden activity with them. Thank you for your generosity.
